Berocca - blogger relief (and some fine marketing!)

Berocca Blogger Relief PackI have learned, discovered - and, I suppose, shared - quite a lot with Twitter. It's such an amazing way to keep in contact with friends, meet new people (I follow three or four people from the Luton/Dunstable area), and there's a wonderful sense of community there.

It's definitely not everybody's cup of tea - some might say it's blogging for the attention-deficit egotist(!) - but, along with the daily digest that a handy little shell script produces (unfortunately, I cannot rely on Twitter's archive), it also provides an excellent chronicle of my life so that I can look back on it.

Anyway, you've heard all that before! One of my twittering friends mentioned something called 'Berocca', and I thought I'd look it up. I was most pleasantly surprised to see that there was a special website set up to offer relief to bloggers in the form of some free goodies called - unsurprisingly - the Blogger Relief Pack. Of course, I tweeted this, and decided to apply for one, as did some of my tweetmates (is that a word?). Emma received her email within just a couple of days; I had almost given up on my attempt (perhaps I simply don't update this blog often enough!) when I received an email saying they were going to dispatch a pack to me.

The pack, excitingly, arrived yesterday morning, and I arrived home from work to take a look at the contents. It contained everything the site mentioned and more - see the photo for everything that arrived amidst some rather delightfully green shreddings (and click for a bigger version!).

One thing I ought to mention is that one of my colleagues had some Berocca at work a couple of years ago, and offered some to me. I tend to be on a bit of a caffeine high most of the time, but this made me a bit hyperactive! It's definitely good stuff, and I've had some this evening - it doesn't taste too strong, despite the vitamin C, but it certainly gave me a boost.. I think I'd be asleep by now!

So, thank you, Berocca, for sending me the Blogger Relief Pack - I'm sure the children will enjoy playing with the ones I let them have(!) and I hope this is a commensurate piece of publicity for your rather fine product. (It's about the closest I'm ever going to come to sponsorship.. there'll be no Google Ads on this blog!)
